This is kind of an insight into my warped mind. I was writing an email at dinner yesterday to Kate about the wonderful people at the local VW garage from work (I rung them up last Monday to book it in, and they put that day down as the book in date even though they’d agreed yesterday). Anyhoo, the email’s title was “Those eeeediots…” as in Ren from Ren and Stimpy (except he’d say “you stoopid ediot”, usually at Stimpy).
Anyhoo, thinking of Ren and Stimpy lead me to Wikipedia… and it reminded me of the old cartoons me and my brother used to watch on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. In no particular order I looked up:
- Dexter’s Laboratory
- Hey Arnold!
- Johnny Bravo
- I am Weasel
- Cow and Chicken
- Secret Squirrel – The redesign, not the original
- The Powerpuff Girls
Ah the memories. Unfortunately all of them have ended their runs now. Something I kinda knew at the time of watching, but only just confirmed was that Michael Dorn, Worf from Star Trek: The Next Generation, did the voice of I. M. Weasel in I am Weasel. That was a weird cartoon.
My fave out of that lot? Dexter’s Lab. I’m still reminded of it since Kate’s mum has a cat called Deedee, which is also the name of Dexter’s sister. Difference is that the cat is fecking evil:
If we could get her in pink tutu she might not seem so bad.
